Wycombe Wanderers 2-1 Burton Albion

Wycombe came out on top of a close encounter to secure their first home league win of the season against Burton Albion.

The Chairboys led 2-0 at half-time following a comfortable first 45 minutes which saw a penalty cooly converted by the recalled Joe Jacobson and a trademark finish from Adebayo Akinfenwa, his 200th goal in English football.

Brewers manager Nigel Clough switched to a 4-4-2 formation for the second half, pushing Lucas Akins further forward which resulted in a well worked goal on ’47 minutes for Marvin Sordell. Despite a much improved Burton performance, Wycombe ground out a vital win to move out of the relegation zone whilst leapfrogging their opponents in the table.

After the game, I spoke to the Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth for BBC Three Counties Radio:

Wycombe Wanderers 2 – 1 Yeovil Town

Two first half goals were enough for the Chairboys to record their first ever victory at Adams Park over Yeovil Town.

An excellent strike from Ebere Eze and a penalty from Joe Jacobson looked to set Wycombe up for a comfortable afternoon but a defensive slip allowed Francois Zoko to score just before half time.

The second half never really got going and the home side were able to see out a professional victory that lifts them back up to fifth in the table.
